The Brechtia Colonies (also known as The Brechtan States, or simply Brechtia) is a micronation located within the New Zealand city of Hamilton. The nation is made up of two states; Matuva, located on the third floor of Block 1 in the Student Village at Waikato University, and Leecam, located within the Wintec Apartments. Brechtia has an approximate area of 12 square metres, and a population of 2. The capital region of Brechtia is Matuva.
Formerly a bedroom within the Student Village, the capital of Brechtia was first created in February 2018 by Maxwell Rodley, who initially declared the region Brechtia. His partner Haylee also ruled her own micronation of Leecam within Wintec Apartments. The two states quickly unified under the greater power of "The Brechtia Colonies". To avoid confusion, Maxwell changed his state's name from Brechtia to Matuva, making it the capital.
Brechtia is a federal parliamentary monarchy, managed by Sir Maxwell Rodley. Each state manages their own laws and also has a seat in the Brechtan Parliament to make decisions on the national level. Brechtia also has a Supreme Court, run by Chief Justice Haylee. The nation as a whole accepts and assists any states offering to join the Brechtia Colonies, and has a page on its website with instructions on how to join.
Of the 12 square meters that comprise The Brechtia Colonies, 100% of that area is located indoors, and is comprised of two identically sized territories surrounded on all sides (including above and below) by New Zealand, with the exception of the southwestern side of Matuva, which borders The Principality of Tarclay.
